Southeastern affected by trackside fire then track defect

Not a great day for Woolwich. This morning saw the DLR closed from Woolwich and this afternoon a couple more incidents have led to some Southeastern trains currently cancelled from central London to Woolwich and beyond.

Firstly a trackside fire occurred around an hour ago and now a track defect has been reported around Woolwich Dockyard.

Southeastern’s advice of a DLR from Lewisham to Woolwich via Canning Town is curious and far from a quick option.

UPDATE: The line is now open though cancellations remain

ORIGINAL: As for trains, none are are currently running:
